I live in an in-law suite of a house. They built half of the basement into a 1 bdr apartment. We have our own doorway at the back of the house, which is cool. You'll notice that I have a lot of cheap furniture and home made things. Its not that I'm poor, I just hate buying new stuff when I can find it 2nd hand. or make it myself.
So this is the main entrance, and my cat Iris.
On my far left, is a main closet for coats and junk, mostly junk in our case. Right next to that is the bedroom, which is where I'll take you next. The doors in front of me is where our washer and dryer are and there is some storage space above as well.
And there's also a Chuck Norris poster on the wall!
Then at the right is the end of the hall. (yeah, my hall is really zig-zaggy, just imagine the time we had moving the furniture in!!!). The door on the right is for the bathroom. We'll go there later :P
This is the bedroom. there is only one. I wish we had 2 though :(. The one thing I like about it is I have a really nice long ledge. Iris also loves it!
The Painting I got a HomeSence at almost 90% off because there was a few scratches on it. I just took a purple marker and filled it the scratches. You can't even tell unless you really look at it from up close.
I moved the items on my dresser so I could get it upclose in one shot hehe.
My perfume collection! I have so many! my very old jewelry box. and My special-happy-time box :P..and no it does not contain sex toys! lol
And there is my bed. Its pretty plain. I use those candles at night when I go to bed. I love to read right before going to sleep but I hate getting up to turn the light off rigth when I'm about to fall asleep, So I read at candle lite and i just blow them out when its time for bed. Tada! no getting up required!.. I will enventually invest in a lamp, I promise!
Here is the bathroom. Its very colorful I know! It started with just the shower curtain, then I had these 4 candle holders that matched the colors on the curtain ( there is only 2 left in this pic. The other 2 fell and broke a few months ago.. Iris likes this ledge too lol. I actually have them set in the corner, so she doesn't break these ones but I took them out for the pic.
The counter and more matching candles :P
also a mirror shot of the shower curtain. Also my Lava Night Lamp. Got it at the dollarstore! I don't have a toilet paper holder or any towel holders. I'm thinking of getting the stand up one for the toilet paper, or one that just hangs from the toilet's tank. But if anyone have any creative ideas on what I should get, let me know!
This I made myself! I didn't have any wall art that would go with the bathroom theme so I decided to make this! I call it, art for dummies! You just make a fist, dunk it in the paint and then "stamp". then make some toes! heheh
My kitchen, it doesn't have anything special really. my Water Filter is out because I like to drink room temperature water. Some of you might think thats weird. I hate cold water.
My puny coffee maker. Its crappy but it makes a perfect cup of coffee.
I always have different fresh fruits in this basket. I'm kinda running low right now, Groceries are tomorrow!
ok so THIS is as creative as I get. lol Actually, it wasn't even my idea!!!! It was my friends. She tried to do them with the actual caps but it was too hard. so a few days later I decided to try again with just foil and poking holes in it. So really all I did was figure out how to get the foil to stay on there.
Toaster, Spices, knive, crap bucket, rice, spaghetti, and EVOO
Toaster oven ( notice I don't own a microwave. I rather not use one). I have 2 garbage cans there but 1 is actually for bottle recycling.
This is my livingroom. I decided to go for earthy tones. It make it so peacefull. This is my meditation room! The green sheer I found at Buck Or Two. I had no idea what to do with it but I had to get it since it was only $2.00! I decided to put it up as a room divider. I'm going to look around the fabric shops and try to find the same fabric to make another one on the right side
My very messy bookshelf, with family pics on the top shelf. The kids are my niece and nephew.
My work station. I actually do work here lol
My fiance's guitars and the cat's chair. One of the legs is actually broken. We only kept it because the cat still likes to sleep on it and scratch it.
This couch we found during spring cleaning garbage day lol. So it was free. The coffee table I got off of Kijiji ( which is kind of like Craigslist I guess) It came with the 2 end tables in the bedroom. I paid $20 for the set. the candle older is from the dollar store. The most expensive thing here is probably the book! lol
Well that's it guys. Thanks for viewing.
If anyone has any recommendations or any ideas of things I could add to the place, please let me know :) I'm open to any suggestions!
